Ring rendering by Mike Robinson from Robinson Designer Goldsmith
We often see beautiful finished jewelry on our forums, but it’s a rare treat to get an intimate view of the ring-crafting process. Special thank you to ZahraLeyla for taking the time to share these images. The ring is set with a 4.09ct old cut diamond in a double halo featuring pink diamonds and marquise cuts.
